anise extract (I use tablespoon)
sesame seeds (to sprinkle on top of cake, add as much or as little as you like)
Preheat oven to 350. Bakes for 45 min to 1 hour.
Cream soft butter, sugar and egg yokes.
Add flour, baking powder, baking soda alternating with orange juice. Add anise.
Beat egg white and fold into batter.
Transfer to a greased pan (I use a 10 inch cheesecake spring pan), place a dime wrapped in tin foil into the batter and place in oven.
When cake raises a little brush with egg wash and sprinkle sesame seeds on top, continue to bake.
